MANILA – “I just want to pinch myself.”
Miss Universe 2015 made this statement shortly after her interview with “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson, which was uploaded on the Marvel Facebook page on Tuesday.
“She is so, so cool, so gorgeous,” she went on. “I can’t believe that just happened. I can’t wait to see her in action.”
In the interview, Wurtzbach asked Larson about her thoughts on playing “the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
“It’s really surreal. It still hasn’t hit me yet,” Larson told the Filipina beauty queen. “I just care so much about female representation and showing female complexity on screen, and I’m just honored to be considered for this role and to be joining a huge family.”
Wurtzbach also asked about Larson’s superhero training, with the actress replying that she “didn’t really know how to do a push-up before this.”
“And by the end of it, I was able to do weighted push-ups, pull-ups, things that I never thought I would ever be able to do with my life,” she added.
“Captain Marvel” hits cinemas nationwide on March 6, just in time for International Women’s Month.
